Was this a good deal or can I do better? (Dell Laptop 3541)

Bought a Dell Inspiron 15 3541 from Staples for $170.

Specs:

15.6" HD display w/ webcam

AMD a^-6310 APU with Radeo R4 Graphics
4GB Memory.
500gb HD

Windows 8.1

DVD/RW DRive
4-cell battery...
HDMI and USB 3.1..

It's really, really laggy/glitchy and I'm considering returning it. Any recommendations? Any better deals out there?

Sigh.

Yes very good deal for basic laptop for basic tasks.

Try upgrading to Windows 10 for free.
And installing a SSD.

I doubt you will get anything better than that for less then 200-250 anyways. Unless its another staples deal.

I did upgrade. Didn't help. Also turned off animations, changed antivirus/firewall to avast, etc...

installing a SSD would be the very first thing i'd do with this or any nonssd laptop these days no matter what.

You still got a good deal....if it was new.

Someone has returned it a few days before so it was 10% off. Not spending extra cash on a ssd.
